Tough Job Ahead for Klinsmann

Klinsmann has the aura of the international soccer celebrity — "sexy," one soccer insider said, meaning attractive, in the public relations sense.

Italy have had a solid qualifying campaign for Euro 2012, which has seen the side go unbeaten and concede a mere two goals. The side has also looked impressive in some recent friendlies, beating World Champions Spain 2-1 back in August. Although it could be argued that the Spain squad fielded that day was somewhat experimental, it is still quite an achievement for a national side that only a year previously was in crisis and bereft of confidence.
